Skip to comments.Franken slams mosque opponents
Posted on 08/19/2010 11:04:16 AM PDT by Qbert
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) weighed in on the controversy over a proposed mosque near the World Trade Center site Wednesday, calling the recent opposition to the project "one of the most disgraceful things that I've heard."
Franken was born in Manhattan, and lived there again while writing for "Saturday Night Live" over a period of 20 years.
"I dont know how many of you have been to New York, but if a building is two blocks away from anything, you cant see it," he said of the mosque's proposed site. "Its a community center. Theyre going to have a gym. Theyre going to have point guards. Muslim point guards."
Franken's comments were greeted with laughter and applause, Illinois's State Journal-Register reports.
They [Republicans] do this every two years. They try to find a wedge issue, and they try to work it.
Look at the proposed designed. In the future you total waste of human DNA, learn the facts before opening your arrogantly stupid mouth on any issue.
May be the biggest SHJ
At least the most immature one
I'd expect him to side with perversion, whether it be his life style CHOICE or a perverted “religion”.
Hey Franken, why don’t you go work your wedge back in your Minnesota cabin, you hack.
I’m sure that the Nazi concentration camps had gyms too; does that make them OK?
Franken might be smart in some areas but others, his ignorance is overwhelming...
Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a religion, it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is its own government, its judicial...is in its sharia, and its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.
This is not just a religion, but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes. It is political, and its goal is to supplant and replace.
The sooner America learns this , the better.
Obama? Obama and Company? Should be tried for treason in this issue for promoting the establishment of a foreign government on our soils. He is doing nothing to protect America as per his oath. Also, as a Muslim, he knows this, he know far better, he knows sharia, but is looking to deceive America.
For all interested...Wanna learn more?
Lets keep America, America!

Al, wtf you talkin’ ‘bout? It’s lamebrained Dems like you who are keeping the issue alive. Juz stfu and the whole thing will fall off the radar.
Ok, Al, Muslim point guards in the gym
But what about the power forwards?
Basically, Franken is your basic ghoul. He is not worthy of the slightest bit of respect.
Al’s just glad there’s no soap on a rope.
Howard Dean & Harry Reid are Republicans...who knew?
This is nothing but a victory marker for them - that is very clear.
And Franken is an idiot - that's very clear as well.
Thanks for posting it anyway - I want a good kick in the a** every day from now until Nov. Its gonna make things sooo much sweeter on election night.
Franken might be smart in some areas
Name one. He wasn’t even funny on SNL
“Dear Senator Moron,
Look at the proposed designed. In the future you total waste of human DNA, learn the facts before opening your arrogantly stupid mouth on any issue.”
Ain’t that the truth!
I remember a few years back when he was doing his failed radio gig, and the moron went to some forum where Justice Scalia was speaking. He tried to pepper Scalia with all of these “difficult” legal questions (even though Franken’s a poseur and never went to law school), and Scalia just gave him strange looks and wiped the floor with him, and it was an embarrassment...
But I guess Franken has to keep opening up his dumb mouth and removing all doubt as to his stupidity.
Franken, you friggin' idiot, the protest of a mosque at that location was started by the people, a groundswell movement. The Republicans were late to the party and then only after Sarah Palin forced them into action.
I would love to opportunity to slam Franken.
About 80% of Americans are UNIFIED against this mosque.
DEHUMANIZING TRADITIONAL AMERICA, THE OBAMA GOAL
That makes no difference to the national socialist elite in power, they want to cow America with their Utopia. The former needless genocidal 9/11 sacrifice of 3800 innocent lives is trumped by minority rights. This is just the beginning if Obama and his national socialist junta is allowed to stay in power. People in general should make no mistake about it.
The dehumanization of the 9/11 victims is the goal Obama has.Once this is accomplished, the sky is the limit for this sort of thing.He means to define who is humanand who is not. And then we are to watch silently as Obamas plan to isolate and disempower middle America socially , politically and economically accelerates. Dehumanization of sectors of society is a major fascist technique. So far he has dehumanized many, including the Fort Hood shooting victims, as the sanctity of Muslims is preserved in our military over the necessity for American justice and the future protection of our military personell.
On a parallel matter, Obama is redistricting America as we speak, using the 2010 census. The defining parameters will be to cloister racial and ethnic minorites into their own Congressional constituncies. Subsequently the plan is to pit that block of racial and ethnic minority voters against the rest of America. The minority rights aspect of this mosque argument will then be applied to budgeting. Special federal programs to provide historical justice for the so called exploited will be put in place. Using fannie / freddie for affirmative action lending nearly destroyed our nation and the world economy, and now Obama wants to remake Fannie /Freddie? You can imagine the image in which he will remake these bogus institutions, even Barney Frank is bailing.
There is a very large comprehensive plan, and the mosque right now is the icon on a much larger political battle front. America is kept ignorant of this larger battle. The Obama Utopia is a cultural mosaic, not a melting pot, and he is quietly going about this redefinition of America which will now be rammed down our throats , using his executive powers, the Supreme Court, and a cowed Congress.
Obama will not unite America, he intends to divide it and conquer it, and will use force to do so if he thinks it necessary.Thats why he manifests a burgeoning Secret Service personal security plan which now freezes our municipalities as he travels about our nation.Its a message, part of his campaign to cow America into submission.
This mosque must not be built, if it is, it will likely be destroyed. As Rush Limbaugh says, can one imagine building a Shinto Temple adjacent to the USS Arizona at Pearl Harbor, 10 years after it happened there?
You can see the reasoning here about the overall Obama approach which he has very carefully revealed to America in fits and starts, so few will connect the dots. This is his so called transparency:
